Marvel artist and CCO Joe Quesada has unveiled teaser artwork for Marvel/Netflix's Daredevil season 3. Marvel is set to have another busy year and it's already started with a bang. Black Panther is ruling the box office, while on the TV side the 100th episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs this week. Meanwhile, in the Netflix corner of the MCU, Jessica Jones season 2 premieres this Thursday, and the adventures of Matt Murdock will continue sometime later this year.
We haven't heard much about Daredevil season 3 since the show cast "Maggie", believed to be Matt's mother. That of course gives us a big clue that the new episodes will adapt Frank Miller's seminal run from the comics and his Born Again story. In it, Matt is in much the same position we saw him at the end of The Defenders: half dead and being cared for by a group of nuns. One in particular should be his long-absent mother, which means a good portion of Daredevil season 3 could see Matt out of commission as Daredevil. Fortunately, his retirement isn't expected to last long.

Joe Quesada took to Twitter to share a piece of promotional artwork for Daredevil season 3. While it doesn't reveal any new details about the season ahead, it's a fun teaser from a key Daredevil comics writer.

An official premiere date for Daredevil season 3 has yet to be revealed, but it probably won't be in the spring like seasons past. Jessica Jones arrives this week and Luke Cage season 2 began filming around the same time, suggesting it's next in line behind Jessica Jones. As such, Daredevil season 3 may not arrive until either arrive late summer/early fall or the November slot in which Jessica Jones and The Punisher season 1 have premiered in years past.
Along with Matt, characters like Karen, Foggy, and Kingpin will all be back in Daredevil season 3. Set photos from this season have shown a trial for Wilson Fisk being held - something that could lead to him re-entering society and returning to his burgeoning criminal empire. Rosario Dawson will also return as Claire Temple in Daredevil season 3, allowing her to continue serving as the connective tissue between the different Marvel/Netflix series. Now that the new season of Jessica Jones is upon us, it hopefully won't be too long before we find out what "The Man Without Fear" and his allies/enemies are up to next on the small screen.
Daredevil season 3 premieres on Netflix sometime this year.
